My Mother is my most faithful friend. She is always at hand in times of sickness or trouble; my interests are always her interests. What would I do if Mother did not make my flimpsy, filmy frocks and keep them cleaned and pressed for me. What would I do if Mother did not understand my heart?
This is the journal of Virginia Lee Scott, my grandmother, written when she was seventeen and first dating my grandfather, John Arnold Wilson. It's a dairy published by Media Drug Stores and includes space for two entries per day, with facts about the era printed at the bottom, which I have included in italics. Following, 1928, is the journal of John Arnold Wilson, my grandfather, at age nineteen and in love with my grandmother, followed by my grandmother's journal in 1931.
